Compulsory Updates – USA Gymnastics Region 2
Her athletes were getting noticed due to her innovative choreography and original skill elements. Although Selena has had so many amazing accomplishments, I can safely say that having her daughter become an elite athlete and make the USA National Team was one of her most proud and memorable moments in her career.
She enjoyed traveling to international competitions playing dual roles of coach and judge when needed. The hurricane was devastating not only for Fliptastics, but Selena personally.
Somehow she managed to continue holding together her the team she held so dearly in her heart. Fliptastics was everything to Selena and she gave so much during those hard times to make sure that her kids could continue in the sport they loved. Selena stepped into the role as JO Chair on the Program Committee and played an important role in creating and developing the Junior Olympic Code of Points — one of the most time consuming jobs in acro.
No one can even begin to count the amount of volunteer hours she has put in to our sport! As a judge Selena quickly moved up the levels of internationally ranked Brevet judges.
She judged at countless international meets. Jim, as a freshman in high school, set an Oregon state record in the AA, to win the state meet. He went on to U of Oregon. At that time, the National meet was 2 days long, with 12 events the first day - compulsory and optionals.
The second day was finals - 18 events if you made it through on all events. As a freshman, Jim was on his 18th event in two days, and on the HB dismount, he landed stiff legged and tore his knee up.
That summer he fell on a fence while working for his dad, and tore his other ACL, which ended his career. Dick Foxal considers Jim to have been one of the best gymnasts in the NW.
